As you may know, but for the others also: Nortel is working to set up a 
100 node test network of this nature (each node wired through switches 
with some test director automation) in a RF clean environment in a Lab 
in Ottawa and Marcus is one of the folks doing that.  We hope it will 
help produce some useful results for scaling up the mesh networking.

We'll keep the group updated as this project proceeds.
